house democratic leader nancy pelosi to the podium to present a mementos you will all receive as you leave the statuary hall . >> thank you very much, mr. chairman schumer, and cochair alexander wonderful inauguration. mr. vice-president, mr. president, first lady, first lady, first lady -- [laughter] dr. biden, all of our distinguished guests. i will tell you about a gift for you. freedom now stands on the dome of the capitol of the united states. may she stand there forever not only in form, but in spirit. those were the words expressed 150 years ago by the commissioner of public buildings as the statue of freedom was placed atop the capitol during the presidency of president lincoln. that expression of the spirit of freedom is what we want you to take with you today, and it is contained in this portfolio that you will receive from the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies, along with a frame depiction of the capitol as it appeared at the start of the civil war. you heard it well described by chairman schumer in his remarks. today the statue of freedom and the spiri
, the husband of house minority leader nancy pelosi. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the united states, mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by secretary of the senate nancy erikson, clerk of the house of representatives, karen h0. 0s, mrs. schubert, mrs. reed and -- [cheering] >> next up we're going to see the approach and about to be announced of vice president, the world's happiest guy, bill biden. don't think we have ever seen him except in times of national crises without that smile on his face. >> and why not today. >> it's the effect of joe biden's remarks on this administration. they were an odd couple. he was the hot to barack obama's cool. >> he was the punch line for a lot of late-night monologues. if anything, joe biden has emerged in this administration has a key player and indispensable player in dealing with the congress and the political part of politics, the people part of politics which the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy on. >> do you agree with that. >> if you look at the deal with congress, they tried every other relations
or in fact have harry reid or nancy pelosi come out and attack them all the time if you're trying to get something done that demands an agreement with the other side. bob? >> first of all, charlie, one thing you have to is president obama does not control harry reid or nancy pelosi they are more than anxious -- >> despite how he might wish. >> yeah, in willing to come out and attack republicans on their own spontaneously and with sincere conviction. >> rose: do you think that's helpful? >> no, i think it doesn't work and i think he's got a real problem with that. but i think of very interesting question here is what are his frustrations in the job and it's alwa harto get goodata on that but i think one of his frustrations is in the first term he inherited that financial crisis and he did a good job. we now have an economy not just on the verge of stability but on the verge of takeoff and you never get credit as president for what you kept from happening which would have been a depression and he knows he spent so much energy on that sand he knows in the midst ofit he got health care refor
'm hearing talks that nancy pelosi and others are not done taxes, but want to move after the rich more, climbing over 50% is not a big leap, and leaving it just to the rich and thinking that the rest will not be affected -- >> right. neil: there's a lot more to come. >> right, and, you know, looking at the democrats' plan and the president's plan for spending over the next ten years, we know they want to tax the rich more. they want to take that rate up to 50% or so of the richest income. there's just not enough money there. they can't pay for these explosive spending levels that they foresee for the next ten years, so it's right in the sense they are going to come off new taxpayers if they can't bleed the rich anymore to fund big government, but the benefit of having the fiscal cliff behind us is that the argument is not about taxes. now we're talking about spending. republicans, leader mcconnell on the hill, speaker boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to
taking extreme position after newtown could lead to nancy pelosi becoming speaker once again. >> rose: you have talked about on your program general powell in one colin powell said on "meet the press." does that represent for you the sense that the party is looking inward at all, these issues like gun control, like fiscal issues and like outreach to minorities that it had not done before but is doing it because people like colin powell are stepping forward to say if we don't have a tolerant party we won't l not have a future? >> well, charlie i'm pleased secretary powell still considers himself as a republican. as a republican i wasn't necessarily thrilled that he supported a democratic president but i understand colin powell believes like a lot of my moderate republican friends that this party left them a long time ago. it's very simple. when colin powell is on your side off much better chance of being elected president. when people like colin powell are supporting you, be it a republican candidate or a democratic candidate, that's a positive. we republicans over the past two three,
democratic leader nancy pelosi. >> michael beschloss, a little different in mood from the folks who are already outside to the president and his party moving through the hallway. half of them look like they're headed for an execution. >> i think that's right. and maybe not very rationale now. four years ago, maybe because barack obama came with problems coming from almost every direction. now at least he's in a situation where he can give a speech to give a little bit more of what he would like to do rather than how he's going to respond to things that have been thrown in his lap. >> sergeant of arms broke it up a little bit by saying something to the president that got a smile out of him. but everyone is remarking the same things, david, today. the president's older and grayer. daughters have grown up. we've all changes. four years at that. look at that crowd. >> i was thinking about this. we're not the own ones glued to our screens here. the president is walking tighter and straighter, shoulders up, understanding the ceremony has a purpose because the whole world is watching our t
day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second amendment does not say that they can have any kind of amendment of they want. guest: let me answer your question about the meeting is being televised you are correct that the debate about the bill in congress was, to some extent, televised through the normal proceedings that cspan covers. obama was referring to the early negotiations which is what he had been critical of hillary clinton for -- the part where deals would be cut with the pharmaceutical industries and hospital industry and those negotiations were all behind cl
